Tree Preservation Services

For nearly everything in life, the best treatment is always just good prevention. The best way to fix something is never having it happen in the first place. The best way to ensure that your trees are at the peak of health and not suffering from something that you’ll never notice yourself is by contacting your local professional arborist. Our team of certified arborists can care for any of your trees from one-week old saplings to a 75-year-old hardwood.

Often times one of the main issues that we find with mature trees are due to soil compaction over time. This compaction slowly suffocates and causes damage to the roots. It may sound silly but compacted soil doesn’t allow nutrients and water to properly distribute and be absorbed by the roots. Just as we humans don’t work well when stressed, stress opens up trees to more diseases and problems.

Root Damage

If you can avoid anything at all, you want to avoid doing any root damage to your tree. It usually will happen during construction or other invasive work and can severely impact the health of or kill an aged tree. To be safe, the best thing you can do is just not do any digging within the drip line of the tree, where the branches reach out to. The farther away you can stay from the tree the better. Good tree preservation starts at planting, but often times a tree will have been on the property longer than you have. That’s where arborists come in, we can ensure your trees are healthy and check their health profile from leaf to root.

Girdling Roots

Girdling roots can be caused by a number of things, from a rope being left around the roots at planting, a tree being planted too deep in the ground, or excess soil compacting the roots. These things can cause root rot and eventually even tree death if left untreated.

A root collar excavation can reveal girdling roots around the trunk of the tree by removing the topsoil to expose them. Once we see this we can work to get them spread out and get your tree more healthy. You need to ensure you’re working with a professional arborists if you want the best for your trees.
